Living Large in Tiny Digs


I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Victoria Vargas of Smaller Living about how to live lightly and creatively in 375 square feet. We talked about her experience in a small space, decorating tips, and more:

Can you tell us about your downsizing experience?

Victoria Vargas: I've tended to live in smaller spaces for most of my adult life. When in grad school, it was out of financial necessity and then afterward, as a preference. When I moved back to Phoenix six years ago, however, I upscaled to a more spacious luxury apartment and felt odd and out of place there. It had too much unused space and I rambled around it, trying unsuccessfully to make it feel cozy, but ended up feeling out of place and frustrated.
